Panic Inc.


We love creating amazing products in a fulfilling and positive way. Do you?

Located in beautiful, rainy, extremely beautiful Portland, Oregon, we're an independent software company with about 25 employees and a lot going on. Founded in 1997 as a fully self-funded, independent, and sustainable business, our award-winning macOS and iOS apps are loved by users around the world.

Our product philosophy: to create absolute best-of-class applications and tools that people need to use every day, and to experiment with new and uncertain ideas that can generate inspiration. Balancing both keeps our work interesting.

We currently ship a very powerful web development IDE for macOS; Prompt, a wonderful SSH client for iOS; and Transmit, the most powerful app for transferring files on macOS. We’ve broadened into video game publishing — Firewatch, in 2016, and Untitled Goose Game, in 2019 — and are now developing a new handheld video game console called Playdate.

Employee Benefits

In addition to base salary, we offer all employees:

  • Participation in twice-yearly profit sharing bonuses
  • Flexible vacation policy with two week minimum
  • Guideline 401(k) plan with guaranteed 8% company contribution
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, vision, life, and long-term disability insurance
  • Health Savings Account fully funded with monthly company contributions
  • Reasonable, life-compatible hours

We're mostly located in Portland, Oregon, but we're also open to remote work. Due to Covid-19, our office is currently operating in a hybrid mode, with many employees choosing to work from home. While some of us hope to return to the office as soon as we can, others will continue to work remotely.

Inclusion & Diversity

Today, our team (and often our industry) is missing the voices of a lot of people who could make our wonderful apps even better. We want that to change. We want to broaden our team to include folks whose diverse backgrounds and experiences will inspire and guide our products to new heights. We highly encourage people from traditionally underrepresented groups to apply for our open positions. We work hard to foster an environment at Panic that empowers individuality, empathy, and innovation, and we’re looking forward to what you’ll bring to the table.


Did you read our qualifications and feel like you’re really close to being a perfect fit, but maybe you’re missing one? Or do you have incredible skills but haven't been feeling super confident lately? Push through. Please consider applying regardless. None of us at Panic are perfect geniuses or have it together 100% at all times — we’re all just doing the best job we can, and we're confident you can do that too.
